Clearly, I need to make a blocking board and use it!  I feel that I am ahead of the game, however, because I have actually woven in all of the yarn ends!  Yes, I have turned over a new leaf when it comes to those ends.  If you wait until you have a lot of blocks made, the task seems overwhelming.

Granny Square A Day...

Or as long as I keep it going.

I love the idea of crocheting a granny square a day!  I am working on large projects at any given time (for instance, a queen size blanket for the bed), but sometimes you just have to put it aside for awhile!

I wish I could remember the blog...forgot to bookmark it...

But it was about making a completely different granny square each day.  Perfect!  So, it may be February 13, which is a late start for a New Year's project, but whoever said a year must start on January1st?
Day 1

Day 2
My biggest challenge?  I found a lovely pattern for a flower square.  On someone's blog last Saturday, and once again (because I didn't know I was going to do this) didn't make a note of this.  I apologize to you!  It will not happen again!  And once I find that person's blog again, I'll come back and put in the attribution.

However, several things in the pattern didn't work for me, so I altered the pattern A LOT.  All of you in the crochet/blog world, do the alterations make this my own design?  Just wondering.

At any rate, here are Saturday and Sunday's squares, and after a yarn shopping trip (always good to have an excuse for buying more yarn) (or beads, but I digress), I'll put up today's.

Wish I had thought of doing a blog sooner;  I've made so many things that went to someone.  I'd have a record of all that obsession, I mean hard work :)
